The ›gren‹ project [danish for branch] is inspired by natural trees or more specifically branches. It encapsulates the development of a new, modular connector system. The system offers enormous freedom for creating customized and individual objects. Indeed, ›gren‹ is meant to be an organically composed structure that freely, playfully, even chaotically grows like a tree since the only controls are the five different connectors.
The project originated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen and evolved at the University of the Arts in Berlin. These plastic connectors provide the strength and durability to create furniture like a coat hanger or a room divider.
